As long as we’ve owned our home we’ve expressed a need for a cabana by the pool. Finally, this spring I felt motivated to put theory into practice in support of my current design interests. Through the years I’ve helped frame over a dozen full scale homes; a sufficient number to pre-visualize each aspect of the process and the time frame required to make a sound and valuable end product. Soon, I’ll post a video explaining this building’s costs and my design objectives going in.

The second was to make this a fun play space for kids with windows scaled accordingly and to meet a visitor’s expectations for a basic overnight crash-pad.
